Classic Beauty with Modern Dynamic Performance and Safety Combined:
Supplied complete and ready to install, the unique and proven Kineo system enables the "Classic Spoked Look" to be truly available for your bike... but with all the dynamic handling and safety benefits provided by the most modern tubeless tires. They are also fully compatible with tubed-type off road tires too.
Produced from 7000 grade aluminum using a new and unique process, the one-piece - and completely airtight - Kineo rim is precisely CNC machined, carefully coated in its durable finish, and then finally has its aluminum valve inserted.
5 Rim colors available (all powder coated - except silver, see below)
- Black Glossy, Black Matte, White Matte, Anthracite Matte (Dark Gray)
- Silver Glossy/Shine (polished aluminum with clear protective coating)
- Special rim colors are also available with a supplementary charge
To provide optimal distribution of the material's grain - for the maximum strength essential at the heart of the wheel - the 7000 aluminum alloy Kineo hub blank is initially forged to a shape similar to the final finished item. After precision CNC machining it is then coated with its attractive, corrosion resistant anodized finish. Bearings are protected by supplementary external oil seals and external spacers are CNC machined and coated with hard anodized finish.
5 Standard hub colors available (all anodized)
- Black Glossy, Black Matte, Silver Matte, Shine Silver (as per rim)
- 6 Special hub colors available for a supplementary charge
Titanium (Darker "Bluish" Gray), Gold, Orange, Red, Blue and Green
The double swaged 5/4mm spokes are produced by turning from a drawn high-resistance bar and galvanized for corrosion resistance. The 28 front and 32 rear spokes are perfectly rectilinear and tensioned at the hub with a normal hexagonal Allen key/wrench. If ever required, individual spokes are easily accessible for replacement without disassembling the wheel or even removing the tire.
Spoke colors available
- Silver (standard color)
- Alternating Silver & Black
The Light Alloy Spoke End design is one of the most significant innovations within the Kineo wheel. The ends are inserted externally on the rim in a transverse orientation (i.e. parallel to the wheel axis) and require no holes through the rim at all for absolutely guaranteed tire sealing integrity.
8 Spoke end colors available (all anodized)
- Black, Titanium (Darker "Bluish" Gray), Silver, Gold, Orange, Red, Blue and Green
The Kineo hub and bespoke brake disc carrier system (one or two for the front wheel and a single carrier for the rear) enables straightforward installation the original stock/OE (or OE compatible aftermarket) brake discs with no modifications required and ABS sensors are also installed as originally designed. Brake disc carrier components are supplied in a Black anodized finish.
For some applications, special specific bolts, nuts and washers are supplied for standard/OE braking discs installation.
CUSH DRIVE & SPROCKET CARRIER:
Kineo wheels are supplied with a specific 8-pin Cush Drive which is completely external to the rear wheel hub. This feature is entirely independent of the wheel and has its own a double-row bearing to support the radial load induced by the chain to supplement the wheel's two integral bearings. Cush Drive and Sprocket Carrier components are supplied in a Black anodized finish.
When applicable, Kineo rear wheels are equipped with a specific hard anodized aluminum sprocket (included). Kineo sprockets are made from 7075-T6 aluminum alloy (Ergal), entirely CNC-machined and hard anodized. The sprocket included will have the same number of teeth as the corresponding OEM sprocket. A different number of sprocket teeth must be specially requested when ordering.
